Description: There is a saying that those who fail to prepare are condemned to fight the last battle. Too often, professionals are consumed by their day-to-day tasks, focusing on their strengths and what worked in the past, unaware that expectations are changing. In other words, they’re stuck in the past, the last battle, and don’t anticipate what the market will soon require. This is a course about transformation, developing a “long-term consistent strategy and vision” to ensure students are consistently “reinventing” themselves as uncertainty and complexity increase and expectations evolve. This course doesn’t just cover how to make a personal change. In addition, it will place students in the role of CEO to establish a vision and build a strategy to achieve organizational change.
Review: “All in all this was a very good course. Jeremy Ghez is a bright and inspiring teacher. The content of the course was extremely interesting and well put together. I would have certainly enjoyed to have some sections of the course expanded, which was my only disappointment. I thought the assignments were very well handled.” For additional reviews, click here.
